First post - be gentle.

I have been looking for a new bike for a few months now and this is a real bargain. Reduced from £1,900 to £1,235, it is one of very few bikes in this price range with a full carbon frame and Ultegra Groupset.

IWhat also set it apart for me was it has great reviews and was nominated for bike of the year.

I know some people can't see the justification in spending this kind of money on a bike, but for those who do this is a great deal.

Wow!

I didn't pay that for my car.

Yup - here we go - the "£50 heavier-than-your-kid "mountain bike" from Tesco brigade" pitching in with what they think a bike should cost.

The value of a bike isn't its scrap metal value.

Looks nice..thought raleigh went to cheap few years ago

I have a raleigh 15 years old and commute 10 miles to work
its fine but made in uk before they cheapened the brand

Lovely.
I just went with the Giant Defy 3, this is way out of my price bracket.

Lol Id be worried when parking it anywhere

I did have a good look at the Giants - the TCR Advanceds were on my shortlist. Really nice bikes....really good reviews and excellent quality.

Actually its a gorgeous bike..no good for roads in reading with massive bike sized pot holes everywhere

Carbon frame and Ultegra grupo for £1235?
Excellent price.

I bought a Focus from Wiggle last year which was a seamless transaction. Just be careful with sizing is my only recommendation to make sure it is correct for you.

I thought wiggle had no quibble returns if the size isnt quite right. Still a good price but alot if it isnt comfortable after 20miles and youve still got 40 to go. Good price for spec.

Nice, competes with Ribble's full carbon with Ultegra at this price.

Check out canyons bikes, they are awesome value for money. Something like 7.2 kilos for about £1600

There's one with full carbon + full dura ace groupset for a few hundred more. Rather have that I think.

Well, it is £1000 more, Dura Ace is about £500 more than Ultegra for the groupset. It does have a few more upgrades and a cracking frame.

If money wasnt an issue its a really good bike, but way out of my budget.
